Ingredients

1C Old Fashioned Oats
2 scoops Protein of Choice
1/4C Pistachio Butter
1/4C Honey
1/4C Water

Directions

In a VitaMix, grind 1C old fashioned oats into a flour. Add 2 scoops protein of choice (I used Cellucor – Cinnamon Swirl) and pulse to combine. Transfer to a large bowl. Then, I made my own pistachio butter in the food processor. Add 1/4C (4T) of the pistachio butter, 1/4C honey (or agave), 1/4C water and mix. It will be difficult to stir but make sure it is combined well. Pour the batter in between 2 sheets of wax paper or parchment paper and roll out until it is smooth and flat. Place in the freezer for a couple of hours to harden then chop into pieces. I wrapped mine individually in the wax paper and put them in little baggies. I recommend storing them in the freezer because they get soft in the fridge.

Makes: 5 bars

Serving Size: 1 bar
